Definition

MoDisco currently defines an Activity (aka Capability in the UI) that allows enabling or disabling all of MoDisco UI contributions:

<extension
      point="org.eclipse.ui.activities">
   <activity
         description="MoDisco UI Contributions"
         id="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.activity"
         name="MoDisco UI Contributions">
   </activity>
   <category
         description="MoDisco UI elements"
         id="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.category"
         name="MoDisco">
   </category>
   <categoryActivityBinding
         activityId="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.activity"
         categoryId="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.category">
   </categoryActivityBinding>
   <activityPatternBinding
         activityId="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.activity"
         isEqualityPattern="false"
         pattern="org\.eclipse\.gmt\.modisco\..*/.*">
   </activityPatternBinding>
   <defaultEnablement
         id="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.activity">
   </defaultEnablement>
</extension>

Product maintainers can use this definition as a starting point for customizing their product. See org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.infra.capabilities.

Selective Capabilities

Capabilities can be as selective as you want. For example, you can choose to disable certain MoDisco views. This disables the "EPackage Registry" view:

  <activityPatternBinding
        activityId="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.activities.activity"
        isEqualityPattern="true"
        pattern="org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.infra.common.ui/org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.infra.common.ui.views.packageRegistry">
  </activityPatternBinding>

Here are examples of patterns you can use to disable MoDisco contributions (use isEqualityPattern="false" for regular expressions):

Element Pattern
"Package Registry" view org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.infra.common.ui/org.eclipse.gmt.modisco.infra.common.ui.views.packageRegistry
